There’s no consistency here. No ingredients in hot and sour soup. Ordered special flounder and got what was a whole grouper. Shanghai rolls had new ingredients with lots of spinach??? Crispy duck and green beans were very good. I hope owners read this as we...like the food when it’s made properly.More

I was there yesterday on 10/29/19 and the service was horrific! My family and I have been going there for at least 3 years now and we always enjoyed the food. Well yesterday was a different story. First of all, we get there and there...is nobody at the register nor anybody to seat us. So we already had to wait at least 10 minutes before somebody even saw us to sit us down. Then my food comes out and I ask the waiter for more water and he seemed very disgruntled with an attitude. He then pours the water and it spills into my food (chicken and broccoli). I told him that water was in my food and he seemed to brush it off and ignore me. I had to repeat it to him like 3 times and then he wanted to just transfer it onto another plate. I told him it still has water can I please have another order. He was very resistant and finally decided to bring out only a half of the order. Then we hear staff arguing and yelling in the back in the kitchen. Then some guy comes in I guess to pick up an order and same thing he complained to our waiter that no one was at the front. Instead of getting someone, our waiter just brushed him off. The other customer was angry. Then we hadn’t even finished our food before the waiter was bringing out the check. This place went really down hill, don’t know what happened. Very disappointed, will never come back!!More

So bummed as this has been our go to place for over 25 years. Once the new owners took over, we gave it a try despite their other restaurant in a neighboring town getting awful reviews for being dirty and unsanitary. Slowly it's gone downhill....We recently stopped in and to say it was dirty is an understatement. And they were a hot mess. I went into the restroom to get paper towels to wipe down our table and couldn't leave quick enough. Out of toilet paper, towels to dry your hands and just gross. On the way back to the table, I saw a mouse running through the restaurant. Never going back.More

I came here for dinner after the management promoted this restaurant in an online chat group. Since I live nearby, I wanted to give it a try, why not? Though the name has the word Szechuan in it, the menu that was given to me...has very little to do with Szechuan. Upon chatting with the server, I was told the cuisine here is mostly Americanized Chinese. And the dishes listed on the private menu (all written in Chinese) are Cantonese. The place really is unkempt, like other suggested. I went to the men's room and found a local advertisement paper littered in the urinal. The overall lighting is also dim. I really wish the management can do some upgrade on this. The whole place does not really feel inviting to me. I ordered three dishes: - ShangHai pan fried pork buns (8 for $8): Not very special. It's not bad, but just not something that you have a bite and say wow, I am so happy I ordered this. - ShangHai-style noddle mixed with fried scallion and fried shrimp ($7): I am glad I tried this dish. It's something new to me. I originally thought this dish is going to be cold but was surprised to find out that it was hot. The scallion is fried in the pan until burned and gives the dish a charred aroma. The oil was also seasoned. - Beef noddle soup ($9). The noddle was cooked inside the broth. Typically, the noddle was cooked in hot water and once cooked, the noddle is placed in a bowl and the broth was poured over it. But when I got the noddle, I first had a sip of the broth and the broth is very starchy. I could tell that the consistency is different and therefore, I guessed they cooked the noddle with the broth. It's a technique (Chinese pronunciation: Oui -- yes, like the French Oui), but I personally prefer to have noddle cooked separately. I don't like the starchy consistency of the noodle. Overall, I personally am not impressed with the food here. I may come back if I crave the food but I do know if I want to get very good Szechuan dishes, this restaurant is not the place to go.More

Szechuan Delight is a delightful place to have lunch or dinner. The staff is nice and the food is really good. I would recommend this restaurant if you like Chinese food.

Szechuan Delight is the restaurant we visit the most often, as the staff is very friendly and kind, and the food is absolutely delicious. Being from Southern China, the food they serve is the closest to authentic Szechuan cuisine we've ever had in New Jersey....Our meal was also relatively inexpensive, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was also very welcoming, which was a plus. Would highly recommend, and we will definitely be coming back for more!More

Went here for lunch from the office and is also across the road from the hotel. Staff were friendly, service was good, food is average Chinese nothing overly stood out but no complaints either, for around $7-9 for lunch seemed reasonable.

I heard good things about this restaurant - so, went by while visiting in NJ. Huge disappointment. There is really nothing positive to say... service was poor (and they were not crowded), food was low/mediocre at best. I had the steamed dumplings - horrible -...thick doughy coating - probably frozen, certainly NOT home made. I also had the moo shu chicken - again, bad - I didn't eat much of it (ate the chicken only) - large pieces of very tough cabbage... thoroughly poor visit. Don't bother going - waste of your time and money.More

Ok. So the new owners are on track to destroy a local icon for Asian food. Quality is way down. Rude and abrupt service is common. The place is now unkempt, lights blaring, dirty floors, even the staff and owners do not look very clean....I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like now. This had been our favorite place before the new owners took over. Everyone in town is saying the same thing. We have heard about loud arguments in front of customers. My food got shoved at me on the take out counter and some messy looking women gestured me to the door -- but I was still waiting for my credit card. Let's avoid this one, and maybe these new owners will have to sell to someone who will do a nice job, bring back the quality and the cleanliness, and treat you with respect. For now, I will wait for the "Under New Ownership Again" sign before I go back.More

Our family have been coming here for many years so we were surprised to see it had changed management on our last visit. We hope it is just a case of settling in as the service was disappointing to say the least! We had to...seat ourselves; we had to ask for our own menus; we had to ask for the usual chips and dip and even had to ask for cutlery! The bathroom was a disgrace with overflowing trash cans and no paper towels to dry your hands on. On the plus side the kitchen staff must be the same as the menu and food was still as wonderful. We will try again but if the service does not improve then we will be looking elsewhere for Chinese food.More
